Let’s face it, businesses have secrets that you, as a customer needs to find out. Like for example when you are making your special dish. You don’t need to tell to anyone who have tasted your dish because it will ruin your business when customers find it out, instead of going to your place to have a taste at your specialty, they’ll do it at the comfort of their home because they already know the recipe for it. This is different from web hosting companies. You need to find the secrets of web hosting companies to stop them from fooling you around. Here are three of those secrets:
1. Web Hosting reviews. There are so many web hosting reviews out there that you can generate a detailed review of a particular web hosting company in just 1 click. The truth about these web hosting review sites is the web hosting company offers commission to a review site that generates a lot of leads. If bloggers are making a review, they will do what is best to entice their visitors to go to a web hosting company which gives them a lot of commission. So be aware of review sites you get to see each day when looking for web hosting reviews.
2. Overselling. The truth about unlimited disk space and bandwidth is hidden inside their terms and conditions page in which when you read carefully, the disk space and bandwidth is also limited. The “unlimited” strategy is just only to get customers go to the web hosting company’s plans. You can never use all of the resources offered in a plan.Â There will come a time where you exceed the bandwidth and diskspace and when it does, overselling turns your unlimited plan to a limited offer.Â Knowing this, you can still find good ones that offer unlimited web hosting.
3. CPU usage. When you save files and consume bandwidth, the server will need to consume a considerable amount of CPU for it. There is limit to the actual CPU usage your website can use in a web hosting company. If you reached that limit, your website will go down for a while, so providers can adjust their system. Overselling also takes place here since although you can get as many files as you want and consume more bandwidth than you need, you still need to worry if the CPU exceeds its limit for servers to use.
These secrets are all over any web hosting provider. The problem here is when you don’t know about these secrets, your web hosting provider can get more money from what you actually have to pay therefore, cheat on you. But these secrets are not meant to cheat people. This is only their way to provide quality services to the public. Be vigilant and keep watch these web hosting company secrets. If the company offers too much, stay away from this website as this too have other tricks up their sleeve to fool people. Be very careful in choosing a web hosting company for your website, do not just pick anything which is cheaper than what most has.
